Just Plant Something! Anyone can do it!

You love the idea!  You love the flowers!  You love the fragrance!  You just don’t love the idea of putting a lot of work into the care and  maintenance of one.  Actually, rose bushes may be easier to plant & care for than you think.  All it takes is a little planning, a little care and some patience…

- Choose a good sunny spot.  Your rose will need about 6 hours of sunlight per day.  Remember to leave room for your rose to grow.

- Select your favorite rose bush.  We have a collection of over 80 varieties.  There’s something for everyone!

- Prepare the soil.  Roses like a rich, loose soil with good drainage.  If needed, you can amend your soil with Clegg’s Planting Mix.  Dig a hole that is twice as wide as the bush’s root ball, but no deeper.  Plant your rose bush at the same depth as it is growing in the container.  Fill in around the root ball with Planting Mix and water well.  Cover the soil with a layer of mulch to help control weeds and retain moisture. 

- Remember to feed and water!  Roses will reward you with beautiful blooms & lush growth if you water thoroughly & deeply once or twice per week and feed them regularly.  We recommend using fertilome Rose food. 

- A regular spray program will prevent insect & disease damage.  If you want to avoid spraying, consider planting a disease resistant variety such as “Knock Out” or “Drift”.

- Now it’s time to enjoy!  Remember to stop and smell the roses now and then.
